Imperial Red

Oregon, United States
8% ABV • IBU 80 • SRM 16

This draft-only release is a hop-forward beer designed to satisfy as we hunker down through the final weeks of the rainy season and look forward to warmer weather. This double red ale is truly an imperial red IPA. Clean caramel malt sweetness provides a backbone for huge hop flavor and aroma provided by classic American hops like Simcoe and Amarillo. You'll get big notes of pine, orange, resin, and lemongrass from those hops, and the beer finishes clean and dry. The body is big and smooth, and a touch of warmth from the elevated alcohol level makes this beer a robust and satisfying offering. Cheers!
